Having spent most of my life on, in or next to the ocean, I enjoy surfing whenever humanly possible. When not surfing, I have managed to earn both national and international recognition for my work as an Art Director/Creative Director from such fine institutions as Communication Arts, Graphis, Print Regional Design, The One Show, HOW Design International Awards, Step Design 100 Showcase, the ADDYs and even Dirt Rider magazine (for Product of the Year). In the past, I’ve brought amazing energy to clients large and small including Harley-Davidson Motor Company, The History Channel, Polaris Snowmobiles, JanSport Daypacks, TaylorMade Golf and Trek Bicycles.
I’ve worked as a designer, an art director and creative director at some fine shops along the way and have been privileged to work with some very talented folks who I have learned a thing or three from. Without theses experiences, I’d venture to say I’d be somewhere else in life doing something that I’m probably glad I weren’t doing (I’ll let you the viewer run with your imagination).
Outside of work—and the occasional surf adventure—I juggle my time between my three girls, two dogs and as many long motorcycle rides as I can fit in.
